Gregg’s Best and Worst Films of 2016

It was certainly a turbulent year in the entertainment business as 2016 saw the passing of numerous stars. Bowie left us, then Alan Rickman and the list went on with Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds passing just days apart. While they have moved on to whatever the next stage may bring, we will always have […]

The Magnificent Seven (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Try as I might, I just could not get to Antoine Fuqua’s remake of The Magnificent Seven (The original, a Western re-imagining of Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai) in the theater.  I had a free ticket from The Magnificent Seven collection Blu-ray set I picked up at Best Buy to revisit it before this new one.

Great Acting Foundation Holds Up ‘Fences’ (Movie Review)

To see Denzel Washington star, produce and direct an adaptation of August Wilson’s Pulitzer Prize winning play Fences is to literally watch the superstar paint himself into a corner. I mean that in a good way, as this is a story that was originally set entirely in the backyard of a house in Pittsburgh. This […]

‘The Magnificent Seven’ Ride Into An Average Sunset (Movie Review)

It seems funny calling The Magnificent Seven a remake. Beyond knowing that 1960’s Magnificent Seven was a remake of Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai, this basic story of innocent people recruiting a ragtag group to help them stop an evil threat has been seen many times over the decades. Even Pixar has used this formula with […]

Aaron’s Most Anticipated Films Of 2016 (Based On What’s Scheduled)

This is always a tough list to put together. I see over a hundred movies a year and a lot of those films are ones I’ve been anticipating to some degree, while many others are smaller films that randomly arrive on the calendar months after the start of the year. I am aware there are […]

Two-time Academy Award-winner Denzel Washington (Best Actor, Flight; Best Supporting Actor, Glory) headlines the entertaining crime thriller The Mighty Quinn.  Under bright skies and sandy beaches, paradise hides some ugly truths in The Mighty Quinn.

Virtuosity (Blu-ray Review)

It is nice to see Warner Brothers taking the rights and reaching into the Paramount vault and pulling out a few titles at a time in an effort to convert their library to high definition. That said, that also means taking films that are enjoyed by some, but mostly looked at poorly by others. Virtuosity […]

Kori’s Top 10 Films of 2014

Well another year has come and gone, leaving in its dust quite a year in Hollywood. We had the tragic and shocking deaths of Philip Seymour Hoffman and the beloved Robin Williams. Sony released, pulled and re-released the controversial film, The Interview, due to cyber threats and their systems getting hacked by North Korea. This […]

Top Ten: Aaron’s Most Disappointing Films & The Worst Of 2014

Never a post of joy, but every year does see the release of films that are not very good.  I never seek out films with the purpose of hating them and a majority of these are not without redeemable elements, but if I have at least 10 films on a list that I consider better […]

The Equalizer (Blu-ray Review)

Truth be told I wanted nothing to do with The Equalizer when it came out theatrically.  I even went as far as to not make any plans to attend the press screening of it when it dropped in my area.  What kind of reviewer does that?  I can tell you.  It’s a bad one.  I guess […]

The Equalizer Brings Balance To The Blu-ray Format This December

Here’s another title that slipped past me theatrically this year at the movies, but I have heard enough good word of mouth about The Equalizer, starring Academy Award Winner Denzel Washington, that I want to take the next step on the Blu-ray format and give it a chance.  Looks like I’ll get my cake and eat it […]

‘The Equalizer’ Takes Too Long To Find Balance (Movie Review)

What do you see when you look at these older actors taking care of business?  A week after writing about Liam Neeson’s latest foray into the realm of B-movie thrillers, I now get to write about Denzel Washington’s latest action/thriller.  All I can say is The Equalizer certainly takes its time.  By the end of […]

Spike Lee Joint Collection – Volume 1 (Blu-ray Review)

Finally some more Spike Lee “joints” are getting the love on Blu-ray.  The Spike Lee Joint Collection features two volumes and four films.  I don’t know if there is any more planned beyond these two releases, but I hope its the start of something.  This first volume of the set covers 1998’s He Got Game […]

THE SPIKE LEE JOINT COLLECTION Coming To Blu-ray!

This doesn’t make up for Oldboy, but alas someone is finally digging into Spike Lee’s back catalog of films.  And, funny enough, I now need to write a new piece for next week’s ‘Wishlist’ article as it was going to be for The 25th Hour which now sees a release date of June 10!  It also […]

2 stars, ‘2 Guns’, Too Fun? Maybe… (Movie Review)

2 Guns is a lot of things, but calling it ‘good’ is something I am having trouble trying to do.  Given that the film is based on a comic series, which I assume is very pulpy and full of dark humor, I could give it the benefit of the doubt that it is supposed to […]
